Lucky Birthday Girl

Yesterday was my birthday. I had two packages in the mail.

Jenny sent this vintage birthday card. It is so cute, I think it may be even older than me. It has no price or manufacturer on the back.

Jenny knows I love Charming Tails so her package included this farmer mouse.

Jenny's box was also full of craft and sewing items. I noticed the owl fabric had been cut into.....

Well, the missing owl fabric is the backing on this gorgeous wall hanging. I had mentioned to Jenny that I thought an owl wall hanging would be a future project. Since I'm an idea person and don't often complete my plans, I'm glad Jenny made me this handsome fellow. Jenny has posted more photos on her blog.

My second package was from Coldwater Creek. Jenny had told Angela that she was making me the owl wall hanging. So Ang and Austin, who are in Spain, ordered me this cute set of owl salt and pepper shakers. I usually have 4 sets of salt and pepper shakers on the stove top ledge. We only use the plain glass ones and the others are decorative and change with the holidays. This dapper pair will be a neat addition.

Many thanks to my family and friends who made me feel special on my birthday.

What would we do without our girls? They are so sweet. Yours to you and mine to me. They remember things we like. Jenny and Angela are amazing. I'm so glad they take care of you. What sweet thoughtful gifts. We are lucky moms (mostly). Happy Birthday.
